FAQ About Solo Trips in Japan

How are GAFFL solo trips in Japan different than Tour Companies?

GAFFL solo tours are DIY (Do It Yourself) tours. Traditionally, tour companies will plan everything for you and group you up with people. On GAFFL, tours are user-generated. Any traveler with a potential itinerary can start a trip. If you like a trip, simply connect, then plan a trip together using the real-time chat, meet up, and travel together.

Can you give me an example of how solo tours in Japan are different from Tour Companies?

Absolutely! Think about hiking the Grand Canyon. A traditional tour company will charge you thousands of dollars to put you in a group to hike the Grand Canyon together. On GAFFL, you can just search for the Grand Canyon National Park, find a trip you like, connect, plan, split costs, and hike together. You do not pay anything extra for tours and also save money if you decide to split costs with your tour mates.

Are GAFFL solo trips in Japan free?

GAFFL does not plan any trip for you. We just help you connect with the right travelers. After getting connected, you are planning everything with your tour mates. That’s why we do not charge anything for tours.

How much money can GAFFL save me on my next solo trip to Japan?

GAFFL can potentially save you up to 70-90% tour costs in Japan. Traditional tour companies may charge thousands of dollars for a two-week trip in Japan. After getting connected with a solo traveler on GAFFL, when you and your tour mate split costs for rental car and lodging, you are not paying for anything extra and on top of that by sharing costs, the overall cost per person goes down significantly.

Are GAFFL solo trips in Japan safe?

Travelers on GAFFL go through a multi-step verification process that includes phone, social, and ID verification. Also, you have the right to connect or not connect with anyone you want to. You are in control of who you go on a tour with on GAFFL.

Are GAFFL solo trips in Japan run by Tour Companies?

No, trips on GAFFL are not operated by tour companies. Our tours are 100% user-generated.

What GAFFL Users Are Saying

Marie Arroseres
from France

"It’s really nice to have a platform like GAFFL with lots of travelers wanting to do the same as you, a real beautiful cultural exchange. You can meet people so easily and in a trustful way. We were four girls, from French, German and American backgrounds, without knowing each other from before. We spent an amazing week together, 2000km driving, camping on the way. We saw kangaroos, koalas, penguins and pelicans"

Saeed Alam
from Canada

“I have found GAFFL to be an amazing tool for finding similar minded travel partners to embark on an adventure. Through GAFFL, I had organized a trip to Mexico City last month and Quazi joined the trip from Victoria, BC. We spent 14 days of straight exploring, hiking, eating and drinking. Quite an amazing experience - all thanks to GAFFL!”

Scarlett Mansfield
from United Kingdom

"I accidentally scrolled across GAFFL and I'm so pleased I did. I met Amaia and immediately decided to road-trip together. We're spending 10 days together and it's great because we have so much in common. Couldn't have done it without GAFFL helping us find one another! It has honestly made NZ so much cheaper to explore as I get to split the costs with someone too​"
